Pennine Instruments has a model specific UKAS accreditation for the calibration of sound level meters and calibrators. See our UKAS Schedule for further information.

The Acoustic Laboratory also offers a fully traceable calibration service for most makes and models of acoustic measuring instrumentation. The primary equipment in use within the laboratory is an automated Norsonic Calibration Test Centre with two Anechoic Chambers.

The following list illustrates some examples of equipment that may be calibrated in this laboratory:

>> Tapping Machines >> Sound Meters
>> Sound Calibrators >> Microphones
>> Preamps >> Amplifiers
>> Dose Meters  
Acoustic Calibration

Airflow Calibration

The Airflow Calibration Laboratory has fully air-conditioned environment and contains a 5m wind tunnel. The wind tunnel generates airflow from speeds of 0.5 to 30.0 metres per second. The wind tunnel velocity and the laboratory barometric conditions are constantly monitored by precision instrumentation enabling the laboratory to offer a precision traceable airflow calibration service.

The following list illustrates some examples of equipment that may be calibrated in this laboratory:

 >> Thermal Anemometers  >> Rotating Vane Anemometers
 >> Air Quality Meters  >> Weather Meters
 >> Velometers  >> Pitot Tubes
